If I'm not mistaken, the default mapping are fn+Alt for right click and
fn+Ctrl for middle click, which I find much more convenient than F11

I'm adding my own question as it is almost the same topic:
Is it possible to have the same behavior as with synaptics touchpads
(scrolling) ? I've googled but didn't find any sure answer.
